A Venetian edition of the map prepared by Bernard Antoine Jaillot for the Republic of Genova in the 1730s, at the time the island's overlords.


Brothers Francesco and Paulo Santini were the editor and engraver respectively of their "Atlas Universel," first issued in 1776, before selling the plates to Remondini in 1781. By the time this version was published, Corsica had been secretly sold to France because of Pasquale Paoli's resistance to Genovese rule.
